What is the membership term?
Based on NCACPA’s fiscal year, our membership runs from May 1 to April 30 no matter what date you join. We do not prorate dues under any circumstance.
Why do rates increase per membership category?
Rates increase after the first year of membership as a means to make it economically feasible for those starting their careers. NCACPA spreads the cost across the membership categories based on the number of years in the workforce, with the highest amount capping out at 5 years of certification.
I’m having trouble joining online. How can I join?
If you are receiving a blank screen after clicking “Join” you most likely already have an NCACPA profile and membership history. Please do not create a new profile or attempt to join as a new member. Reactivating membership is not an available online service. Please call our Member Service Team at 800-469-1352 and a member of our team will be happy to assist you with rejoining.
My membership renewal has the wrong member type listed. How can I change this?
This can only be adjusted by speaking to a representative of our Member Service Team. They can be reached directly by calling 800-469-1352.
What happens when my membership lapses?
When your membership has not been paid by the due date, all of your membership benefits are automatically turned off and your “Member Since:” year is reset. This means you will not have access to Connect, CPE discounts, affinity program discounts, NCACPA Interim Report, etc. until you re-join NCACPA.
If your membership has lapsed, but you would like to re-join, please do not create a new record or attempt to join as a new member. Reactivating membership is not an available online service. Please call our Member Service Team at 800-469-1352 and a member of our team will be happy to assist you with rejoining.
How do I update my NCACPA membership profile?
Login to your account and select the corresponding tab (contact info, profile, my organization) to update contact and demographic information. We recommend updating your information annually when you renew your license with the state board.
What is the membership cancellation policy?
You may cancel your membership at any time, however, membership dues that have already paid are non-refundable. CPE programs and social networking events have separate cancellation fees and policies. Please see the social and networking page for more information.
How much do I save on CPE with membership?
Members of the association generally save up to $100 per 8-hour event. Visit this page for more information on the pricing structure.
If I go inactive with my CPA license, can I still keep my membership with NCACPA?
Yes, if you are not actively licensed in NC or another state you would qualify for our Associate Membership. Once we receive notice from you or the NC State Board, we will update your membership accordingly for the current year or next year’s renewal.
I am not currently practicing as a CPA but am still active with my NC CPA license. Is there a special category that I fall in.
No, if you are still licensed, you will fall into our CPA Member category. Dues will vary based on how long you have been licensed. CPA’s licensed less than 5 years will pay $208. CPA’s licensed 5+ years will pay $250 based on rates for 2020.
I’m an NCACPA Associate member and I’m inactive with my NC CPA license. If I decide to reactivate my license in the future, what do I have to do?
You would need to complete the “Reinstatement of NC CPA Certificate from Inactive Status Application Package” and submit it to the NC State Board of CPA Examiners. Please visit the NC State Board’s website for all information regarding CPA licensing. Upon the NC State Board’s approval of your reinstatement, NCACPA will update your membership renewal type back to CPA member.
I have the life insurance policy through The Prudential Insurance Company of America with AICPA. If I go inactive with my NC CPA license and cancel my membership with NCACPA will that put my life insurance policy in jeopardy?
Your life insurance policy through The Prudential Insurance Company of America does not require that you be licensed in order to remain eligible for the policy. It does, however, have eligibility rules regarding membership: AICPA, State Society members or other qualifying organization and age. Visit AICPA’s website for more information.
